Figures in desperate need of a "Vintage" release

Recommended Posts

When I was on a toy haul earlier, I noticed that certain figures are asking $70+ on the after market?!

So with that in mind, wanted to start a discussion about which figures need a re-release due to rarity etc.

 

90's Rogue - Gotta be able to complete the cartoon team, without taking out a mortgage on your house.

90's Jean Grey - The body they used in the Jubilee BAF wave isn't aging well. Bring the ruckus!

90's Cyclops - I hope you're noticing a trend. BAF or no, nostalgia is gonna compel people to assemble the TV suits.

Iceman - Just use the Astral Dr. Strange body, keep his feet and "Icy parts" and he's done.

Omega Red - Every line should have one villain. Give him some bendy coils, and no one will cry about buying another Omega.

Spy Wolverine - Every X Men line needs a Wolvy (federal law, or something...) instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, give him his Weapon X/S.H.I.E.L.D. suit, with all the extra weapons and everything!

 

Who else needs to be added to the list? Who should be removed? Who makes you list? Comment below.

I figure my choice isn't far-fetched since the Black Panther vintage release used his modern look, so this is what I would like:

A re-issue of the Heroic Age Iron Man from 2013. While I already have it, a re-release of this figure would fit well with one of the purposes of the vintage waves which is to provide new fans with a good array of "starter figures" for their collection. The Heroic Age Iron Man is a much better figure than the Neo-Classic Iron Man from the first wave and it's a suit that serves the "ultimate" interpretation of modern Iron Man. On a more self-serving note, I would also hope that a re-release of this figure includes more accessories than the original version, namely that comic book Tony Stark head that only appeared in that UK Disney Store exclusive Iron Man / Cap / Thor / Hulk / Ultron 5-pack.

We're in need of a new Iron Spider. It could be done with minimal new tooling on the Spidey 2099 or Pizza Spidey body. This of course gives them an easy repaint if they ever want to release an Aaron Davis figure as well.

I’m going to say:

Stryfe

Jean Grey Phoenix 

(from the Phoenix/Cyclops 2 pak)

Puck

Spiderman 2099 (Original Costume)

Red Hulk

 

The last two on this list, I ordered from China, interested to see of they are worth it?

if this is a thread about figures already available previously needing a re-release in Vintage packing (for easier purchase) (rather then buying them at their inflated current prices)

I am going with

Comic Captain Marvel

Spiderman 2099

Ghostrider

Ms. Marvel (un-boxed set'd)

Comic GOTG (Un-boxed set'd)

Comic Hela (Un-Boxed Set'd)

 

those come to mind

I could use a Carol Danvers comic Ms. Marvel as well! I’m adding Bafs to my list, as Hasbro has re-released them though not in “Vintage” packaging... Another I’d like to add is The Blob baf!

    • I know that we just got the Spider-Man and Mj 2 pack, but I still really want an Mcu Marvel Legends Shocker figure. We got the basic figure for the movie, but not only was that not screen accurate, but it also doesn't fit in very well with the Marvel Legends. And I can only see us getting a figure in a 2 pack, unless he appears in a future movie. Since we're getting "citizen/no super" characters like an Mj figure and Luis figure from Ant Man and the Wasp, then maybe we could get either Ned or the Tinkerer with him. Who else could be possible candidates for this 2 pack?
    • I pre-ordered the “Homecoming” Spider-Man and MJ two-pack from Target when it was first announced back in February.   With people saying hey picked it up in stores I checked on my pre-order and it still had no movement on it.  I clicked in to the product and found it available in store at my local Target, so I went to go see. There weren’t any out on the shelves, but I gave the SKU to an employee and he was able to go grab one for me from the back. So as soon as I had it in hand I cancelled my pre-order on the Target app.
    • Agreed, I have seen people quoting Kevin Feige saying that Deadpool isn’t broken so don’t fix it. So I can’t see R rated Deadpool fitting in with The Homecoming Spiderman. Unless we have a much different character post snap in Far From Home.
    • Well, we had our first couple of 90 degree days (and its not even #@$% June yet), which only serves to remind me how much figure hunting in the dog-days of summer SUUUUUCKS, so I went ahead and pre-ordered most of the big summer releases through Pulse. Hulk vs. Wolverine, Spider-Woman, Hydro-Man, Scorpion, Rock Python (sounds like an early 80s metal band), Comic Series Loki, Union Jack, Beta-Ray Bill, War Machine and Rescue (whew!). Guess I'm down the rabbit hole now! I can officially throw out that no pre-ordering rule. Looks like I'll be hitting Target today.
    • I love this, haven't had a War Machine since the old Toy Biz one
